He needs to pull a Delph. At the same age, after serious injuries and poor form, he went on loan to his old club Leeds for the second half of 2012 where he didn't do anything of note. At least Gardner is playing well on his loan spells. All Delph needed was a run of games in the PL and now he's a Man City player. Of course, we need a manager to show faith in him as Lambert did in Delph but I'm sure Remi will give him a chance regardless of which division we're in next season.
